I am not a religious person, I think people would call me more of a “Spiritual” type person. However there is one religion that does intirgue me a lot and that is Buddhism. I love Dalai Lama and he just seems so happy all the time, and he recently turned 80 years old. I want what he’s having.
The above post is a link to just some of the wisdom of the Buddhist. Number 6 is probably one of the most important (well I think so) just because there is so much negativity out there. Number 4 is an interesting lesson as well, something to definitely think about.
I just also want to stress that I don’t follow a particular religion, I don’t like the concept of being put into a box, one thing that my friends and family are constantly saying is that I am definitely an individual. I like the freedom to follow whoever I think is cool and awesome.
I am in the middle of a huge research project so this isn’t going to be a huge “Fact Friday” today. What a better topic to write about though than studying! It’s a massive fact of life, at some point everybody will be in school…Or even schooling from the school of life! Which I think it is a completely legitimate school in itself.
So how do you study? Do you need completely quiet, can you study in a noisy workplace. Personally I need something quietly playing in the background while I’m studying. Is it’s too quiet my mind will start to wander and wonder, if it’s too loud I can’t concentrate on the studying.
WikiHow has some great ideas on how to study. They give advice on how to study alone and studying in a group.
College Humor have created this really funny parody about studying.
